Strange moans

My 14 month old son still sleeps in our room. For a couple of days now, he wakes up moaning, its sounds as if he is in pain. I have noticed that he is farting a lot aswell. I give him his bottle &  he goes back to sleep. At about 1am, I have to change him as his nappy is full &  this has made his pj' s very wet. He goes back to sleep but wakes up many times during the night. He can go through about 400ml of forumale during the night, he does not want any water. I am taking strain, please help....

Your baby seems to have developed a food intolerance. This does not appear to be due to a lactose intolerance as this complaint is of recent onset and he has been drinking milk quite happily up to now. It is possible that he has developed a wheat or soya intolerance. Try him on a completely wheat free diet for at least 48 hours and see if he gets better.If he eats or drinks soya then stop this for 48 hours after trying the wheat free diet. See if he improves. If you do not think his symptoms can be due to a wheat or soya intolerance then try and see if you can identify something new in his diet which may be affecting him.
